Can a QTP 11.5 tool use the same old license server?
We have a license server for QTP already, I am under the assumption that with QTP 11.5 we would need to setup a new QTP 11.5 license server as well if we want to keep the old instance running . Basically, I need to have our old instance running till I am confident that all test won't break because of the upgrade. Can someone share their experience? How should I proceed? Install a server or use the old license server with new client?
if you have run into the same or know how to proceed, please let me know. Appreciated much in advance.
You just need to consider if you are not using Unified Functional Testing 1.0 (Released for QTP 11) then, you will be able to perform GUI Test but not API testing.
In order to enable the API Testing, it's required to have a UFT License.

If your are using QTP 11 concurrent license server, you can use is as the license server program for UFT 11.5.
However, your license might not work.

My company has QTP 11, and we are planning to upgrade to 11.5 so will there be a cost to upgrade from 11 to 11.5 or we can just directly upgrade
Also the company has 3 floating liscences, can these be used to the New UTF if we upgrade ?
Thanks in advance
I know that for Concurrent licenses, the QTP 11 licenses will work for UFT 11.5 for the GUI test type. They won't give you access to the UFT 11.5 API test type (previously known as the Service Test tests).

I agree with Trudy. To my knowledge, you would be able to upgrade to 11.5, however you would only have use of the GUI tests as in QTP; the API test functionality that is now offered under UFT would require an additional purchase.
